Falko is a short documentary about Falko Burkert, a German pastry chef and bakery owner in Edinburgh.
He bakes according to special German baking rules and guarantees high quality products. Baking for him is a craft, but it is also an art that takes time. His cafe is very dear to many Germans in Edinburgh, Falko himself included.
There’s something about the festive season that makes people reach for their aprons, get out a mixing bowl and start cooking. Even lazy bakers such as myself get an irrepressible urge to make a batch of Christmas biscuits or a tray of gingerbread men.
